"Books never really end. They stay with you, good or bad, and can float into your mind quite without warning. Years later, the faint embers of a line drift across your conscience or a place you have visited only in print flickers by. The name of a character whirls around the brain like that of a primary school classmate. Books take root. A book alters you, only in a minor way and sometimes fleetingly, but you're never completely the same when you've finished as you were on page one."
Daniel Gray in Scribbles in the Margins 50 Eternal Delights of Books
An Evening with Louise Penny
Monday December 10 | 7:00PM - 9:00PM
Bookmark is thrilled to announce that the New York Times bestselling author Louise Penny will be in Halifax on December 10th for an event including an onstage interview followed by a book signing.
Louise’s latest Inspector Gamache novel, Kingdom of the Blind, “reveals a deeper vulnerability in the introspective Inspector Gamache; is it possible he's not quite sure of himself anymore? A theme of desperation plays out in both story arcs, as characters from all walks of life move between hope and despair and traverse the fine line that separates them. The ending is adrenaline-filled....This starts as a small-town mystery and becomes something grander and more frightening.” ―Kirkus Reviews
Louise will be joined on stage by the moderator for the evening event, well known CBC broadcaster Louise Renault, for a stimulating and entertaining evening of reading and conversation.
LOUISE PENNY is the author of the #1 New York Times and Globe and Mail bestselling series of Chief Inspector Armand Gamache novels. She has won numerous awards, including a CWA Dagger and the Agatha Award (six times), and was a finalist for the Edgar Award for Best Novel. In 2017, she received the Order of Canada for her contributions to Canadian culture. Louise lives in a small village south of Montréal.
The event will be held in the Commonwealth Ballroom at the Westin Nova Scotia on December 10th starting at 7:00 PM. Tickets are on-sale now at $20 each plus HST at www.eventbrite.ca. Net proceeds from ticket sales and a portion of book sales will be donated to the Alzheimer Society of Nova Scotia.
